For the first home decor collaboration in its esteemed 60-year history, Williams Sonoma has teamed up with Aerin Lauder of the luxury American lifestyle brand AERIN. Inspired by delft pottery, and Aerin’s passion for entertaining, the gorgeous tabletop collection features ceramic dinnerware and serveware, glassware and entertaining pieces in a chic colour palette of white and ultramarine blue.
“Collaborating with Aerin Lauder was an exciting endeavour for our brand. Her impeccable sense of style and love for entertaining made her an ideal partner,” says Janet Hayes, president of Williams Sonoma and Williams Sonoma Home. The successful businesswoman and heiress (her grandmother was Estée Lauder), certainly embodies the brand’s enduring style.
“Williams Sonoma has been in my home for as long as I can remember,” Aerin says. “I am honoured to be collaborating with a brand I have admired for so long.” As founder and creative director of AERIN, she currently oversees her own cosmetic, perfume, fashion, and furniture lines as well as the Estée Lauder Companies.
“Both AERIN and Williams Sonoma share the same sense of style and passion for impeccable design. I am so excited to launch this exclusive collection offering a large variety of pieces that speak to my heritage, passion for entertaining and love for home decor. The collaboration and design process has been a special experience since day one and I hope the customer loves the collection as much as I do.”
Some of the collection highlights include the ‘Ginger jar champagne bucket,’ $180 (handmade from porcelain, the woven cane handle really sets it off) and the ‘Ikat runner,’ $90, which is the perfect tabletop addition.
